Apple Employees and Their Families Join San Francisco Pride
July 8, 2014 by HRC staff
Last month thousands of Apple employees and their families from all over the world joined San Francisco’s Pride Parade to show their commitment and support for LGBT equality.
In a video on YouTube, the huge contingency prepares, celebrates and marches in the parade, wearing white shirts displaying a new Apple Pride logo and rainbow flags.
The end of the video states, "Inclusion inspires innovation."
Apple is a leader in the tech community and continues to set the bar for LGBT equality. To show its ongoing support for the LGBT community, last month Apple had a featured station on iTunes Radio, celebrating LGBT Pride through music. Last year Apple CEO Tim Cook called on the House to pass the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA). Apple has also consistently earned a 100 percent ranking on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index since the survey began in 2002.
Corporate America has far outpaced lawmakers when it comes to providing protections for LGBT people in the workplace and advocating for LGBT equality. More and more, companies like Apple are standing as the true leaders in the fight for basic fairness and dignity.
